After seeing Sharon’s pink shorts in person, I immediately went home and ordered them. And two other pairs. It will be hot in Texas through September, so I know I will get many more days of use out of them. Bright shorts might seem like they can only be paired with a white t-shirt, but they are actually surprisingly versatile. You can pair them with stripes (an eternal favorite of mine), another bright, chambray, a patterned silk top…the list goes on and on.
For the first half of my day, I paired my bright pink shorts with a blue patterned top. I have worn something very similar to this. I consider this one the casual version. A great way to elevate your shorts is to pair it with a silk top. Linda does this beautifully.
Banana Republic top, J. Crew shorts, handmade pearls and chains necklace, vintage coach, Newport News sandals.
For the evening portion, I changed into my bright 81 Poppies top and put on gold accessories. Unfortunately, I didn’t get around to taking a picture until after the sun went down. This was definitely a bright outfit, but I love a bright outfit.
Same as above, but with an 81 Poppies top and random bangles.
Coach bags are usually not my thing, but I couldn’t pass up this vintage number found at my Gucci Goodwill. I am kind of obsessed with vintage cross body bags right now. If I spot a vintage Dooney and Bourke bag or a Coach bag, I snap them up, but I would not buy a modern version.
Two questions: Do you find yourself wanting vintage versions of brands you don’t really like? Would you wear bright shorts?
